WHAT YOU’LL NEED

2 old hand­saws

Jute rib­bon or other dec­o­ra­tive

rib­bon

Dec­o­ra­tive em­bel­lish­ments Tree top­per

D-ring with a clip

Heavy-duty, in­dus­trial-strength

epoxy

Hot glue gun

DI­REC­TIONS

Lay saws side by side, one over­lap­ping the other, in a tree shape, with the teeth fac­ing out and the han­dles lined up evenly at the bot­tom.

Run a line of epoxy along the right-hand saw’s left edge, which will be­come the ver­ti­cal cen­ter of the tree. Lay the other saw edge on top of the epoxy, press­ing un­til set. Us­ing hot glue, ad­here rib­bons to the face of the saws in cas­cad­ing di­ag­o­nal lines to re­sem­ble tree gar­land. Ad­here dec­o­ra­tive em­bel­lish­ments and a tree top­per.

Us­ing epoxy, ad­here the clip with the D-ring to the back of the saws near the top. Hang on a wall out of reach of small chil­dren.

WHEN SAWS GROW WORN FROM CUT­TING DOWN THE AN­NUAL TREE, FORGO THE GREEN­ERY AND HANG THEM AS A FES­TIVE FO­CAL POINT.

Add sparkle

with a strand of mini LED lights. Tuck the tiny bat­tery pack be­hind the saws to hide it.
